Rev. John Lowe II told his congregation, “I committed adultery.”

Rowe received a standing ovation. But then the woman approached Mike in her story.
“It was 27 years ago, not 20 years …. I was just 16 when you robbed my virgin on the floor of your office. Do you remember that? I know you do that, “she said.
She said, “You must stop lying and manipulating.”

When another man led the prayer, dozens of people walked around and supported him.
The church phone wasn’t answered on Monday afternoon. The Associated Press left a voicemail message to Rowe asking for comment.
